(JustPatriots.com)- After the US Bishops voted to craft a “teaching document” intended to rebuke Catholic politicians continuing to receive communion despite their support for abortion, President Biden’s bona fides as a “devout Catholic” are getting unwanted scrutiny.
During Monday’s press briefing, a reporter asked Jen Psaki if President Biden believes that a 15-week-old unborn baby is a human being.
And Jen didn’t like the question, so she dodged.
Rather than address the question posed, Psaki pretended the question was entirely different, saying “Are you asking me if the President supports a woman’s right to choose? He does.”

Actually, no. That isn’t what the reporter asked. The reporter asked if President Biden believes a 15-week-old unborn baby is a human being. And she said it in English and everything. There was nothing convoluted or unclear in the reporter’s question. So there really was no reason for Psaki to not understand what was asked — other than Jen wanting to avoid the abortion tangle at all costs.
Last week Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi deployed a similar dodge for the same exact question.

In the same White House press briefing, Psaki was also asked if President Biden would reconsider his support for increased access to abortion in light of the Bishops’ decision. And again, Psaki dodged, claiming that “devout Catholic” Joe’s “devout Catholic” faith is “personal.”

So personal, in fact, that countless fawning news stories have been written about Joe Biden’s “devout Catholic faith.”
So personal, that photographers were invited into the church on Inauguration Day to take oodles of photos of Joe Biden at mass.
Joe’s “devout Catholic” faith is blasted from newspapers and television when it is convenient. But the instant it becomes inconvenient, it is suddenly “personal.”
Even in that answer, Psaki tries to have it both ways – bragging about how often the President goes to church while simultaneously declaring discussion of his faith off limits because “it’s personal.”
Clearly the White House is not happy with what the Catholic Bishops did if for no other reason than it exposed “devout Catholic” Joe’s glaring inconsistency.
